President Harrison Starts on his Tour
to the South and West A Horn- .
ble Giant Powder Explosion.
San Francisco, April 14. The Ex
aminer' Washington special says a wel
defined plan having for its object the
candidacy of Secretary Blaine in 1892
has been formulated by eome of the
Plumed Knight's enthusiastic admirers
here and in the west. It embraces the
retirement of Blaine from his position
as secretary of state next fall.
It is the purpose to have his retire
ment take place after the political effect
of the president's tour south and west
has worn off in those sections. Then
Mr. Blaine's friends desire to take him
over about the same route though a
more extensive one.
The object is to bring the western
farmers as much as possible, into per
sonal contact with the man who has
been endeavoring to get a foreign mar
ket for their "barrel of pork" and "bu
shel of wheat."
Representative Binger Hermann of
Oregon was fefie first to give a hint as to
what was intended.
THK PRESIDENT'S VIEWS.
He Would Build Up Manufactories
Kansas City, April 14. In a letter
read at the commercial congress today
President Harrison says : "The extraor
dinary developments of the production
of agriculture which has taken jlace in
recent periods of this country by reason
of the rapid enlargement of the area of
tillage under the favoring land laws of
the United States very naturally called
the attention to the value and indeed the
necessity of larger markets. I am oneof
those who believe the home market to be
necessarily the best for the producers
as it usually emaninatea him in pro
portion to its nearness from the exaction
of transportation companies. If the far
mer could deliver his surplus of produce
to the consumer out of his farm wagon
his independence and his profits would
be larger and surer. It seems to me
quite possible to attain a larger increased
market- for our staple farm products
without impairing the home market by
opening manufacturing trades' competi
tion in wnicn loreign products are pay
ing lower scale of wages, would have
great advantage.' A policy that would
reduce the number of our people engaged
in merchantile pursuits or diminish their
ability to purchase food products by re
ducing wages cannot be helpful to those
now engaged in agriculture."
Passing to the consideration of the cur
rency, Harrison said, "My idea is that
any dollar, paper or coin, issued by the
United States must be made and kept in
its commercial use as good as any other
dollar. If we have dollars of different
values, only the poorest will circulate,
I have always believed and do now more
than ever believe in bi-metalism and
favor all the use of silver in connection
with our currency that is compatible
with the maintenance of a gold and sil
ver dollar in their commercial uses.
Nothing in my judgment would so much
retard the restoration of the world as
legislation attempted by us that would
result in placing this country upon a
basis of silver monemetalism legislation
adopted by the first session of the fifty
fifth congress. I was assured by leading
advocates of free coinage representatives
of silver states would promptly and per
manently bring silver to $1.29 per ounce
and keep it there. That anticipation has
not been realized ; our larger use of silver
has apparently and for reasons not
agreed upon, dimished the demand for
silver in China and India."
A BAD ACCIDENT.
Foolishly Puts Giant Powder in a
Pobtlakd, Or., April 14. Word has
reached here from La Center, Wash
ington, of a terrible accident which oc
curred near the latter place yesterday.
A farmer named Holcomb had placed
some giant powder ' in a stove. The
powder exploded, demolishing his house
and setting fire to the ruins. Two
daughters of Mr. Holcomb's.aged 14 and
16 respectively, were instattly killed and
Mr. Holcomb and his wife were seriously
if not fatally injured by the force of

NEW ORLEANS GRAND JIKV.
A Report Expected From It During; the
New Orleans, April 12. The grand
jury is expected to report the coming
week, and, among other things, it, is said
the confession of Politz will be used in
the report. Politz confessed his inno
cence and said he joined the Mafia under
the impression that it was a benevolent
society. He was present at the meeting
when Hennessv's death was decided up
on and was ordered to carry the guns in
a sack to Monasterion's shanty, but re
fused. He did not know of the killing
until the Sunday following, but after
wards learned the details from Monas
terion. They were substantially the
same as claimed by the state upon the
trial implicating Scaffedi, Marchesi, Bag-
slayers. The state did not use the con
fession, because it had such direct proof
ot .roiitz's presence at the killing, which
his story denied, f olitz is said to have
had a brother who closely resembled him,
wno nas not been touna. His identifica
tion might have been transferred to him
and Politz's confession would have formed
an important link in the chain of evi
CRIME IN ENGLAND.
A Drunken Barman's Horrible
on bis Employer's Child.
London, April 12. A horrible tragedv
occurred in a public house in North Lon
don this morning. A man named rritz,
emplored as barman in Eggleston's
public house, became wildly intoxicated,
and attacked the young daughter of his
employer, who 'was dusting the bar.
lie struck her on the head with a ham
mer, fracturing her skull. The child fell
senseless at his feet, and Fritz, now
thoroughly frenzied, siezed her by the
hair and dragged her into the parlor,
where, after locking the door, he
smashed the furniture. Seeing signs
that the terribly injured girl was return
ing to consciousness, Fritz again attacked
her with the hammer and beat her until
he supposed she was dead. He then
went to his home, where he loaded a re
volver, telling his wife he intended to
kill every member of the Eggleston
family. Then he dashed out of the house,
and has not been seen since. Fritz's
victim is still living, but cannot possibly
survive many hours, me police are
searching for him.
THE DEATH LIST.
Ex-Governor Waterman, of California.
San Diego, April 12. Ex-Governor
Waterman died at 7 :30 this evening of
pneumonia, after a brief illness.
fR. W. Waterman was born in Fair
field, Herkernier county, N. Y., in 1826.
When verv vounsr he moved to Svcamnre.
111., with his parents, where he grew up
and engaged in mercantile business. He
came to California in 1869, and engaged
in mining tor two years, lie went back
to Illinois, but retnrned permanently to
California in 1873, locating at San Ber
nardino. He was part owner of the rich
Calico mines in San Bernardino county,
and owned the famous Julian mines in
San Diego county. He engaged in farm
ing on a large scale and owned a vast
amount of land. In 1886 he received the
republican nomination for. lieutenant
governor, and was the only republican
elected. Washington Bartlett, (Dem.),
was elected governor, but died soon after
taking office, and Waterman .filled out
the term, which expired last January.
He leaves a widow and several children.
THE POSSIBLE EUROPEAN WAR.
Russia Increasing the Defensive
of the Empire.
St. Petersburg, April, 12. The czar
has renamed most of the regiments of
the Russian army after the commanders
of generals notable since the time -of
Peter the Great, and the reserve battal
ions after the important victories gained
by Russian arms. Ten of these battal
ions are raised to full regiments, ' 20,000
being thus added to the reserves. With
the recent decrees for the construction
of military roads and a large increase in
the fleet, everything points to an unre
mitting increase of the defensive forces
of the empire. The Military Gazette
records important experiments as to the
adaptibility of snow preastworks against
the enemies' fire. Such preastworks
have been found to be exceedingly val
uable. In fact, they are almost impene
trable, when water "is poured over them
so as to form a crust of ice.
THE EUROPEAN MINERS.
They Are Keenly Watching the
Agitation in America.
Paris, April 12. Leaders of lhe re
cent miners' congress are arranging to
appoint a general strike executive com
mittee, composed equally of representa
tives of French, English, German and
Belgian miners. The German miners
have decided, in the event of a strike in
Belgium, to also strike if the German
colliers endeavor to supply Belgium
with coal. The English delegates also
guarantee to stop the export of coal. If
the new system of drawing upon Ameri
can coal weakens their position, the exe
cutive committee will open communica
tion with the American unions. The
strike agitationB in America are being
watched with keen interest.
England's Opium Trade.
London, April 12r The British gov
ernment is greatly dismayed at the de
cision of the house of commons against
the opium traffic, not knowing how to
replace the 4,000,000 the abolition of
the traffic will cost. The opponents of
the traffic intend to celebrate their vic
tory soon by a banquet, and will insist
on the obedience by the government to
the mandate of parliament.

Mahbhfield, Or., April 14. The
preliminary survey of the Coos Bay &
Easrern Railroad will start ' this week.
The road is to be run up Coos Bay and
across the coast range direct to the town
of Winchester, six miles north of Rose
burg. This is one of the four proposed
roads with Coos Bay as terminal point
with a good prospect of being the first
to be completed. t The. line is to be sixty
miles in length.

Mr. L. A. Connella, representing R. L.
Polk & Co.'s "Gazateer and Business Di
rectory of Oregon, Washington and
Idaho," has been in The Dalles for a.few
days past and tomorrow will go to Gold
endale to see what business can be done
in that flourishing city. He reports
having met with much success here and
thinks The Dalles a good town for busi

been generous in their subscriptions and
advertisements to the , directory. And
well they might for the directories pub-
lisned by Polk & Co', are better and more
satisfactory than anything that has been
attempted in this part of the country.
Following is what Polk A Co.'s say of:

Our first book was published in 1884,.
and we have issued the work biennially,
until now it is a recognized standard,
publication of great necessity, doing its
part in the development of the vast em

mand for the book is constantly increas
ing. The tremendous growth of these
states will render the forthcoming vol
ume of vast interest and importance.
With valuable experience and ample re
sources, we will spare no pains nor ex
pense to make the work accurate in all
details. The book will contain a com
plete business directory of every city,
town or village in the state, as well as
the names and addresses of mill owners,
country merchants, professional men,
etc., etc., who are not located in villages ;
also lists of government and county offi
